Blair Waldorf may have been the "crazy bitch" of the Upper East Side, but she was also the reigning queen of getting everything she wanted — and knocking down anything (or anyone) that stood in her way. She had sass for days and a drive for success. She also taught us a little something about living in a world filled with excess — and not just that a headband goes with every outfit. She showed us how to be an independent woman (sorry, Mother Chucker). And, she knew that even the most powerful ladies need a supportive team to scheme help them along the way. (We're looking at you, Nelly Yuki.)

So, next time you find yourself in a rut — be it career-centric, wardrobe-induced, or otherwise — we recommend looking to Queen B for guidance. Ahead, let these 16 prime examples of Blair's infinte wisdom guide you to your Fifth Avenue castle in the sky.
